It was off to Custom House Square for Linda and Scott's pre wedding shoot. They had hoped that it would be lit up from 6.30pm, but 6.30 came and went and as it got darker and colder, we decided that the lights wouldn't come on till 7pm, so I marched them around various locations such as the big fish, McHughs, the Albert Clock, an underground walkway, just to keep them warm and get some shots incase the Custom House lights didn't appear! But just after 7 they lit up, so it was a quick couple of shots before the froze and then home to heat up. Great fun couple, really looking forward to their big day

It was off to a Sunny but very windy Titanic Quarter for Cher and James pre wedding shoot. They wanted to make sure that we got the Harland & Wolff cranes in their shots (well James did, Cher not so much lol) so after lots of lovely photos around the Titanic building and area I discovered that they had shifted the cranes because of the oil rig they have in and I couldn't get a good shot of them in the background, so there was only one thing for it, to get as close as we could with no obstructions, which you will see we managed quite well Wee Harvey loved his camera time the wee poser, he will be fun on their big day

It was off to the Ramada Plaza Belfast for Janice & Jeff's big day. After spending the morning capturing the Grooms preparations, a rather nervous Janice turned up 20 minutes early (a first for any Bride I have met as they are usually late lol) and after a lovely Service in the Hotel (with beautiful room decoration by Sam at Personal Touch Weddings & Events ) it was off for some quick shots around the hotel and we even managed to get one or 2 outside (weather wasn't great). Their day was so fantastic and wonderful, that it was featured in the Belfast Telegraph! (newspaper and website)

Remember I was saying about Film Noir / Old Hollywood Glamour being the next big thing in wedding photography? well here is a perfect example of it with my fantastic Bride & Groom, Julie & Simon. Their wedding fit in to the style so effortlessly, with the guys in dapper black and white Humphrey bogart style suits and black and white spats and Julie and her Maid of Honour looking the epitome of Hollywood Glamour! They travelled from London to get married in Belfast castle, with the wedding party arriving in White Cabs and their guests being transported in a fleet of Black taxis. the rain stopped for Julie arriving and the sun split the trees for one glorious hour which allowed us to get some wonderful shots of a wonderful couple

Such a fantastic day was had at Margaret-Mary and Daniel's big day. After a beautiful Service in Belfast, it was off to the fabulous Galgorm Resort & Spa for their Reception. The Great Hall was the location for their dinner and dancing and a quick scout around the grounds for some photos before we lost the light. But the great thing about winter weddings is that when the natural light begins to go, they switch on their own
e lights and the Galgorms waterfall all lit up is fantastic.

A fresh crisp winters morning for Julie and Gordie's big day. After a wonderful Service, it was off to Crawfordsburn Country Park and Beach for a few quick snaps (before everyone froze) before heading round the corner to their reception at the Old Inn, who thankfully, as always, had the home fires blazing
January 8th 2014
A fantastic day for Joanne and Connor with their Service and reception in the beautiful County of Donegal. After a beautiful Service over looking the wonderful views of inishowen, it was a long trip to their reception (well the hotel was about 2 ft away from the Church) at the majestic An Grianan Hotel. The weather wasn't great as you would expect, but the rain wasn't too bad and they braved a few outside shots in the An Grianan's great gardens.

So at my last wedding before Christmas, at the Galgorm, when I said I was going home, I was rugby tackled to the ground and had my camera wrestled out of my hand by one of the Bridesmaids, who then managed to fire off about 200 shots in 10 seconds after I was pulled in to a group hug! Who'd be a wedding photographer lol (William)
December 15th 2013
There must have been something in the water lately, because I have had quite a few of my past Brides ask if I do baby bump photoshoots! lol. The answer is yes I do. You can see a sample of bump to baby to little lady here of a past shoot. They can be done at your home, at our studio or on location. You don't have to be a past Bride of mine to have a shoot done. All bumps and babies welcome

A perfect day for Leeanne and Liam's special day. After a lovely Service, we had a stop off at Lady Dixons, before heading down the road to the Balmoral Hotel for their reception.

Have had a few people say to me about the new Civil partnership photographers & videographers, 'DIGITAL PRIDE' that have arrived on the scene and how cheeky to use a name and logo very similar to DIGITAL BRIDE. Well there's a reason behind that, it's really us DIGITAL PRIDE is one of our new ventures for 2014. DIGITAL PRIDE is Northern Ireland's only dedicated LGBT civil partnership photography & videography company. Same people, same quality images, slightly different name and logo Here is a look at our latest ad in the current edition of GNI magazine.

My own wedding to the lovely Paula Where has the year gone?! Looking forward to many more years that have been as happy as this one (William)

We just made it to Crawfordsburn Country Park and Beach in time before we lost the light for Sara & Keiths shoot. Though along that coastline the really are some amazing sunsets and managed to get a really lovely sky that evening to set the romantic tone.

Anna was rocking a pair of Converse as she had broken her foot a few days before the big day! (Declan also managed to damage his foot a few days before!) But she got a pair the same colour as the Bridesmaids and after a great Service, it was off to Belfast Castle for their reception. I took it easy on her and didn't have her doing the usual commando rolls across the lawn :)
November 12th 2013
What a fantastic day spent with a fantastic couple at Betty and Stephen's big day. It was off to the Clarion Hotel Carrickfergus with a nip across to Carrick Castle and Harbour, inbetween for some photos where poor Betty almost had her head blew off with the wind! But nothing an ice cream from the poke van couldn't sort out :)
